Famous descendants of the Ukrainian immigrants

Part one.

Where did they come from - the world-famous descendants of the Ukrainian immigrants?

Today we will focus on a few Ukrainians, who are well-known in the world of show business. Among them, there are two charming Ukrainian beauties - Milla Jovovich and Mila Kunis, as well as the partner of James Bond actress Olga Kurylenko.

These beautiful Ukrainian women, as well as their colleague, the famous film director and producer Steven Spielberg, devoted their lives to movie-making. Steven Spielberg is one of the most creative film directors in Hollywood, the real master of his craft. Steven’s grandparents were Ukrainians and from them, he inherited love for the new, original, inexplicable and outrageous things.

The Ukrainian beauty Mila Kunis is the most beautiful and desirable woman in the world according to the list of top beautiful women in 2013. She was born in Chernivtsi that is well-known for its divine women. Mila's parents immigrated to America, where she has built a career, but that does not stop her from being fluent in Russian and loving culinary specialties of her native land.

James Bond girl Olga Kurylenko has started her career in the fashion industry. She comes from Berdyansk, where many Ukrainian beauties, who have won the hearts of Western men, live. Olga began her film career in France, where she graced the covers of the capital's best magazines many times. Then there was the Paris, I Love You movie with Elijah Wood. Finally, the Ukrainian beauty played a super agent in the Quantum of Solace movie.

Another famous showman about whom one cannot forget is the illusionist David Copperfield. His grandparents were from Odessa; and from them he inherited intangible charm and sense of humor, for which Odessa, this beautiful city by the sea, is famous. And of course, everyone in Ukraine knows that the most beautiful and passionate Ukrainian girls live in Odessa.

Today, we would like to focus on one special girl from Kiev - an actress Milla Jovovich. This Ukrainian girl is famous for her specific beauty and we know her for playing in The 5th Element movie. Milla has a great many fans, and she loves to come to Ukraine and Russia, play in the new films with the Russian actors, and with delight treats herself to vareniki and borscht.

The film director Brian De Palma was the first to film Milla on video. By coincidence, Milla’s mom and dad worked in his house. By chance, the first shots of the future famous film actress were made by Brian De Palma. From childhood, craving for art was rapidly arising in Milla. Parents gave her a good education. She studied playing the guitar, painting, and attended acting classes.

However, Milla’s favorite thing to do, common to many Ukrainian and Russian girls, was reading books. It is not a secret that the Slavic girls are well-read and educated! In her numerous interviews, Milla thanks her mother and father for teaching her to read. For Milla it is not difficult to cite the magnificent classic of Russian literature Alexander Pushkin. She knows many poems by heart, both in Russian and English languages. Among her favorite authors, there are Honore de Balzac, Emile Zola, as well as a sensual poetess Anna Akhmatova. "It’s necessary to search for my cultural roots not in America, and but in Russia," Milla says. From the mother she inherited that irresistible charm of Russian culture and spirituality, in which the history, art, modernity, drama and eternal sense of humor intertwined together.
